8 Easy Yard Care Tips to Help Sell Your Home

Increasing your home’s curb appeal is one of the most important parts to selling your home, it’s your potential buyer’s first impression – but did you know that most buyers won’t step foot out of their vehicle if the yard isn’t in good shape? To help you sell your home, we’ve come up with the most effective things you can do outside of your home to increase your home’s worth.

Selling Your Home

 

 

1: Shape Up Overgrown Trees and Shrubs

Trim shrubs and treesIf you do anything to increase your yard’s curb appeal it should be this. Trimming all the trees and bushes around your home can significantly improve your home’s appearance and attract potential buyers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2: Maintain Your Lawn

Mowing your lawnMowing your lawn should seem like a no-brainer, but oddly enough it’s easy to forget when you’re pre-occupied with other things involved in prepping your home to sell. TaskEasy has one-time and recurring lawn mowing packages to help you with your prep work so you can spend more time focusing on other things.

 

 

 

 

 

3: Weed Flower Beds

But don’t forget about the small details such as weeding your flower beds, something that potential buyers are going to observe once they get a closer look. TaskEasy’s Premium package includes routine maintenance to plants and flower beds (just in case you need some help).

 

 

 

 

4: Add Some Color

Planting brightly colored flowersPlanting brightly colored flowers are an easy way to attract potential buyers and add a touch of charm to your home. For more tips on planting flowers read our post, The Best Bulbs to Plant in the Spring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5: Edge Your Lawn

Edging sidewalks and pathwaysEdging your lawn is a great way to strengthen your home’s visual appearance (while turning some heads too). We’re not talking about using a weed-eater to edge around paths and walkways. TaskEasy can connect you with a the right professional contractor who has access to a power lawn edger.

 

 

 

 

 

 

6: Clean Your Windows

Washing WindowsWashing your windows is an easy and inexpensive way to make your home more desirable. Clean windows can make it easier for potential buyers to view the inside of your home. For spotless windows, use a squeegee and wash them with water and vinegar to remove built up calcium and lime.

 

 

 

 

 

7: Add New Address Numbers

Adding New House NumbersIf your existing address numbers are weathered or faded, or maybe they just can’t been seen from the street, then it’s probably worth picking up new address numbers. Address numbers are a cost-effective approach to increasing your home’s curb appeal (plus buyers can now find your home).

 

 

 

8: Welcome Potential Buyers
